Hermès Kelly 25 Retourne Potiron Togo leather Gold Hardware - 2005, I Square
The Hermes Kelly bag is a timeless classic that has represented the pinnacle of elegance in handbags for decades. Ever since Grace Kelly was photographed using the style over half a century ago, it has remained sold out in Hermes boutiques and rarely available only through close customer relationships. This example is a perfect 25cm in visually stunning Potiron Togo leather - Potiron is pumpkin in French. This bag while being produced in 2005, has never been worn and still has plastic on the hardware.
Retourne refers to the inside stitching of the bag’s edges – observe the piping on the edges, you can see it’s as if has been sewn and then turned it inside out. This makes the bag a bit “softer” at the edges, and more flexible (there’s no piping on sellier Kellys).
